In the Information Technologies industry there are few domains less understood than Database Administration. People keep asking what are the responsibilities of a Database Administrator, what are the specific tasks and processes Database Administrators rely on to fulfill those responsibilities and, by which rules Database Administrators abide to deal with whatever they do. Some people ask those questions out of simple curiosity, others because they are in or close to a DBA role, others because they have to deal with DBAs in a user, developer, management, etc. capacity and, want to have a better understanding of the DBA world. Everyone has its own reasons to ask questions about the database administration world; questions are always the same. This book intends to answer those questions. This is a technology agnostic book meaning that it applies to the field of database administration in general rather than focusing on any specific database vendor technology in particular. Enjoy it.
